Review: 1981's An Eye For An Eye is, to this day, the only LP produced by Byrne & Barnes together, and it's as playful and fresh as the first day it came out. While it's a little more on the synth side of things, it reminds us of other blue-eyed soul artists such as Ned Doheny, and throughout its eleven tunes, there's plenty of romance, mystique and soul-ridden funk. Think of it as the prototypical bridge between a 70's jazz-funk LP and the beginning of pop music as we know it today. Blue-eyed soul at its finest!
Review: Long-term fans of Aussie soul singer Kylie Auldist should look to the cover of her new Family Tree LP for pre-warning of the new direction contained within. The angled and exaggerated first name recalls 80s records by her fellow countrywoman, Miss Minogue. However although Auldist has not gone the full SAW, she has fully embraced the DX7-heavy digital soul pop of that same era. There are 11 tracks here of fun and frothy synth-soul including the punchy title track, the smooth Jam & Lewis grooves of "No Change" and the slow RnB electro grind of "Warming Up The Sun".
